Ubuntu 12.10 x64 and steam client
I've downloaded the steam client from this site. But when I start the steam client in a termial i get this error:

The window from steam pops up for a short time. I can choose to login but if I click on that, I get the following message: "Unable to connect to the steam network [...]".
After a short time it disappears.
Does someone has similar problems...or does someone know how to fix it?

are you behind a firewall or something like that?

I'm runnin Xubuntu 12.10 x64 so our package base is the same. I'm running it without issue. I was running it on Ubuntu 12.10 x64bit as well. First off make sure you put in the following required files:

sudo apt-get install ia32-libs libpci3:i386


Without libpci3:i386 you'll get a lot of clipping and artifact problems with games, as well as poor performance. Without ia32 you will have problems with games being unable to find their executables. I also had issues with the steam chat list and oddities without them.

I suggest you get that in, then toast your steam installation and retry a clean install with the above libraries....

I do not believe this to be a true connectivity issue. The end message is a generic 'unable to connect' granted.. however the messages in the logs do not seem to coincide with a connectivity problem.

Why did you attempt to run steam as root? That seems like an exceedingly bad idea, considering it creates some directories in your home directory on first run... (Could mess up permissions on those dirs if you run as root... and don't give userspace apps root permission so easily!)

It wouldn't do anything to the directories/files in his $HOME created on the first run under that user. Steam would create all the first-run stuff for root in /root, which is root's $HOME.

EDIT: ROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT
